Wills, Garry.  What Paul Meant.  NY:  Viking (Penguin), 2006.  193p.  (Wills interprets the writings of Paul in the New Testament in light of his Jewish background and the cultural and philosophical setting of the first century under the Roman Empire with the multi-ethnic and muti-religious situation of the Jewish Diaspora.  Wills is particularly concerned to dispel the concept popular in the late 20th century that Paul was somehow a reformer and a radical redesigner of Judaism and of the concept of Jesusí teachings of the Kingdom of God.  The author shows how faithfully Paul maintained his Jewish identity and character and addressed the meaning of the Jewish Covenant in the revelation of God in Jesus Christ, as fully consistent with the Jewish faith of his era, though different from the ethno-centric and nationalistic concept of the leaders of the Judean nation.  Very refreshing and enlightening.  His probe of Paulís concept of resurrrection is particularly helpful.  He reminds us that Paul is the first person who put into writing anything about Jesus and provides the first interpretation of his resurrection.)  Read 14-15 April 2022.  Bible Backgrounds (Old Testament, Archaeology)
